NRHS grad writes abridged dictionary
When Josh Abramson started studying for the GRE, he discovered most dictionaries are convoluted and hard to understand - so he decided to write his own.
"Most of the words are defined with other complicated words," Abramson said. "It's too much work and defeats the purpose of learning. By the time you're done, your brain is confused and you still don't know how to use the word correctly."
